What People Say about The Marketing Academy...

The Marketing Academy Australia is sponsored by:

Don't just take our word for it. This is what our community around the world have said about our programs...

The Marketing Fellowship provides motivated individuals with a unique opportunity to work with peers from a variety of industries and backgrounds. It is the perfect platform for those motivated to transition their careers to the next level and to validate their potential. The quality and intensity of the programme is both a function of personal engagement and the thoughtful manner with which it has been constructed. I would recommend The Marketing Academy Fellowship experience to any committed professional that is motivated to examine their potential and courageous enough to act.

The Marketing Academy offers professional development like no other. I feel like it has elevated my thinking to another level and that in years to come I will look back at it being a really crucial, wholly positive juncture in my career. It’s about more than just career development though. As part of the Scholarship I have met some of the loveliest and most impressive people. If they are up for it then I’ll be their friend for life.

Harry Dromey, Director of Brands & Campaigns, Global, 2015 Scholar / UK

What has really stood out for me, is the journey towards authentic leadership: The Marketing Academy encourages the scholars to develop their own personal leadership styles, and have confidence in their ability to inspire others to do the same. There is no cookie-cutter mould, and indeed the Marketing Academy embraces the variety & diversity of its scholars, each with wholly different approaches to business and leadership. What binds us all however, is a desire to lead and inspire, rather than direct and manage. Being connected with some of the UK’s top business men & women, being coached by top professionals, being brought together with some of the most exciting & interesting peers possible, how could we not be inspired to up our game and push our potential to the next level?

Sophia Wetherell, Industry Manager – Technology, Google, 2012 Scholar / UK

Inspirational; informative; and insightful – it’s not often you can say that about a development programme.

Fellow Alumni / EMEA

The Marketing Academy gave me the tools, inspiration, and space to develop my personal views on leadership, at a critical time in my career and life.

Scholar Alumni, 2018/19 / US

I truly believe The Marketing Academy to be the most inspiring, creative and effective professional development programme in the industry – if not the world. It is phenomenal that, with the support of our partners, it can be offered to scholars for free – when the coaching, network, learning opportunities and development skills you get match that of an MBA. I feel incredibly privileged to have been part of the inaugural year and it would be no exaggeration to say that I draw on my learnings from that year every day. There are few experiences so genuinely guaranteed to change your life, and I thank everyone involved for making that happen for me. Support it, apply for it, or nominate someone else, but find a way to get involved. I promise that you will reap the rewards.

Lucie Bartlett, 2010 Scholar / UK

Sherilyn has shown amazing vision, passion and skill in rapidly building a new ‘brand’ (The Marketing Academy) – and one that every marketer in the country wants to be associated with.
